of president obama tenure, gdp growth has been 1.5%. historically, for the last seven years, it has been 3.7%. we have had less than half the historical average pared by contrast, in 1984, gdp growth was 7.2% print what does that mean when the economy is growing, when small businesses are prospering? they are creating new jobs and people are able to find work. it creates opportunity for everyone. what we have unfortunately is small business after small business facing crushing uncertainty. the single biggest question you hear from business leaders is they don't know between obamacare and dodd-frank and the offshore drilling moratorium in texas. but entrepreneurs expressed to me is the sense of great uncertainty. what will the federal regulators do? and the president keep promising to raise everyone's taxes, which is causing small businesses to keep capital on the sidelines and not deploy it because they have so much uncertainty. >> i am not certain that the president is going to raise their once taxes. but you know what the growth rate was -- do a deal with the gdp growth rate was at the e

enough times, you start to year i read something about that obama being born in kenya. our brains have a tough time turning off information, just putting them off in front of the statement or saying it is false isn't enough. it's very difficult for people to set those affects and emily's experiment is one illustration of that. there is a whole literature that shows how tough a time we have found human beings. another problem i want to draw attention to is what is often called he said she said reporting. treating the miss statements as simple matters of opinion, disputes between the two sides. the sky is blue or purple, who knows and we see a tremendous amount of coverage. journalism has made progress in this area in the time at least since i have been involved but there is still a long way to go and that sort of she said she said coverage has two problems. first, it may increase the familiarity of the claims but second, a very perverse incentives for politicians who know they can make false claims and while our colleagues on the first panel may call them out a lot of other reporters re

years ago, were pulling the wool over the eyes of voters even back then. at least with obama, as of we have heard, he is somewhat more circumspect when speaking in person about his new ones and some of the things you hear coming out of his ads. in one case, he corrected or contradicted his own advertising. to make my predictions, i sort of threw darts at the claims they make in their stump speeches, romney and obama. we recently did takeouts on the standard speeches that they give. one from each side. i predicted it is quite likely that we will hear mitt romney say that gasoline prices have doubled under obama, which is an example of one of those things that is, yes, literally true if you look at where gasoline prices were when he took office. they have plummeted due to the world wide near-depression we suffered, but the fact is that they have never quite gotten as high under obama as they work for several weeks in the summer of 2008 under bush. i think we will also hear president obama say that we have created half a million manufacturing jobs. he will drop his voice and say, in the l
